  1. Hi and check https://www.scalemates.com/search.php?fkSECTION[]=All&q=bf+109+k+1%2F32 there You see another Prop&Spinner AM, my favourite is of course Henri Daehne but be aware that the HAS spinner is not correctl scaled. Means undersized and HD scaled according original Spinner. Another tip: https://stage.revell.de/service/download-center.html search instruction# 04702 .On page 6 section 11, you see the correction for the K version the HAS is not indicating. So that it for the moment and sure soon the experts explain more. Regards/ R
  2. Let’s summaries having a few knowledge about (war)aircrafts (dragons too ). What would you do if you have a kind of aircraft and your fleet is sailing in war-time somewhere and once you were attacked by surprise and lost your fleet. Well I would use the Dragon as an surveillance aircraft (surveillance Dragon). NOT DONE Okay, incase they had stealth ships and you were attacked out of the blue and one of your comrade is shot down (be reminded one Dragon already down and one was hit or threaten once by a FLAK). First you take distance from the threat and second you analyze from the distance the situation. Well the warships were heavy armed in the front but the back was complete unprotected, even if you are a desperate Japanese pilot you would attack from the back with the knowledge that even if they can turn their FLAK - the pole and sails will give a good change of protection. NOT DONE TOO (WTF) Whoever was the screenwriter, he should change his job, romantic flights in the sky do not fit to GOT. For me the chain of bad mistakes started with season 7. As I remember this was not the case in the previous seasons. my two cents/pennies about GOT S8E4 and yes sure I will watch the other episodes too BTW the German FLAK 8.8 needed 421 (or higher) shots for ONE Airplane and the rate of fire was about 20 shots per minute (same as in the movie w. there FLAK)
  3. Hi Andreas, as I remember you have good contact to Revell. The construction manual for this model (Product number: 04961) is missing. I'm interest if Revell corrected the instruction sheet compare to the original Dragon sheet. R/ Ralph
  4. So finally it is done, I have temporary a 3D printer at home and of course I used it. I printed with the highest resolution 0.025mm. ZM and HKM be aware, I know how a decent P-51B seat support has to look like and painted FI: If you use postimg use direct link to insert image
  5. what about the P-51B 43-24837 "Berlin Express" in Duxford http://www.mustangsmustangs.com/p-51/survivors/serial/43-24837 and http://ww2live.com/en/content/world-war-2-sale-razorback-p-51c-mustang-iii-project-just-70000000 R/
  6. I'm curious if the Revell instruction sheet has the same mistakes as the Dragon sheet..if not, I'm delighted to use the Revell one for replacement
  7. is this what you are looking for P-51B Florin
  8. Bob, think in the other way about the 3D print technology. With the 3D print you can "technically" create a negative form(s) including venting pipes and used it to do the resin. Would be interesting if this was ever done
  9. excursion to the computer modelling world
  10. Hi I'm looking for pictures showing the seat support on the table or bench. I searched in the internet but all pictures are only showing the top and current for me the lower part is importand. Finally the 3D drawing is almost done and before the 3D print in 1/32 start, I would like to know how good the drawing is. So does anyone of you have a seat support stored in the basement and can take pictures for me Drawing of the seat support ( was very time consuming for me) and finally the Armor-plate were the seat-support belongs Regards Ralph
  11. sure, I know see: https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=74160 does anyone has this Eduard or REXX exhaust an can post a picture, thx PM send
  12. Maybe in the future, current busy with job searching and 2nd with the drawing of the P-51B seat support mounted on the head armor-plate
  13. Bill remember, 99% of the Japanese are shy to speak English because they are afraid to make spelling mistakes but they can read English. In case you need help outside of the big cities, write it down and show it to them, this may helps you or ...you have a good mobile contract with access to the internet, in this case you can use a translator. Enjoy Japan
  14. Hi all, many of you know that I did 3D-drawings based on original drawings for the P-51 exhaust followed by a stereolithografie 3D test print. The modelers life for P-51 accessories getting from day to day better. Means from REXX exhaust are existing (for TAM P-51) and for the new Revell, Eduard did a release and “109ace†has them in his Ebay store too. I wouldn't be surprised if Quickboost will be the next company. For you to know I'm not depending on this product for living, but the drawing is done and I'm thinking to offer it over platforms like “Shapeways†or “Trinckleâ€. Any scale is available, but I think to start in 1/32 and 1/24 scale in the beginning. In case the demand is very low, it can be done with my friends 3-D printer but what I like to avoid is the packing and sending issue, for this I do not have the time. For myself the next step is to do exhaust for the TAM P-51D, the original one are okay but by gluing them, I was not able to do them in line or I was not aware to use kind of a support. Other issue for me is the “alibi†holes in the exhaust stack to indicate they are hollow (Revell does not have it, if I'm right). Looking at the TAM exhaust even I drilled careful with a bigger diameter, still gives me the feeling that a beetle VW engine is installed. At the same time I do the awful P-51B TRU (exhaust and kit) I'm current working on it. Dragon and Hasegawa to be followed too because I have this models and the plan is to build them (maybe). Be aware, I'm talking only about the unshrouded exhaust. Now the query to the audience, is there a need and if yes do you require the accurate detail with the flange and bolts in 1/32 scale? Cheers Ralph Pictures under: https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=65409&page=3 or https://postimg.org/gallery/fvv9ywhi/
  15. Bill, see http://tokyo-hobby-shops.geraet040.net/ I also recommend Yodobashi Camera and more than the models I miss the food in Japan. Have fun Ralph
